    Detailed description

    • Total product fees = fees incurred by requests + fees incurred by traffic in excess of the free tier.
    • The number of requests refers to the number of all URL requests that users initiate to ECDN in a certain time period. It can be calculated based on logs, that is, it is also the number of total log entries of a domain name in a certain period.
    • Request tier refers to the total number of requests generated from the 1st day of the current month to the settlement date, which will be zeroed on the 1st day in every month. The cumulative cycle is 1 month.
    • The number of requests will be rounded up to the nearest 10,000 requests.
    • The traffic will be rounded up to the nearest 0.01 GB.

    Billing Example

    Suppose your usage on January 1-3 is as follows:

    Date January 1 January 2 January 3
    Total number of requests on the day 59.8 million 25.2 million 64 million
    Total number of requests in the month 59.8 million 85 million 149 million
    Total traffic on the day 1,400.48 GB 692.52 GB 1,731 GB

    Fees for January 1

    • Request fees:
      The number of requests generated on January 1 is 59.8 million as shown below, and the cumulative number of requests in January is 59.8 million. On the day, 50 million requests fall into the tier of 0–50 million, and 9.8 million requests fall into the tier of 50 million–100 million. Therefore, the request fees for the day are 5000 * 0.029 + 980 * 0.026 = 170.48 USD.
    • Excessive traffic fees:
      The number of requests generated on January 1 is 59.8 million; therefore, the free tier of traffic is 5980 * 0.25 = 1,495 GB. The actual traffic generated on that day is 1400.48 GB, which is within the free tier; therefore, the excessive traffic fees for the day are 0 USD.
    • Total fees for the day
      The total fees for January 1 are 170.48 + 0 = 170.48 USD.

    Fees for January 2

    • Request fees:
      The number of requests generated on January 2 is 25.2 million as shown below, and the cumulative number of requests in January is 85 million. On the day, all the requests fall into the tier of 50 million–100 million. Therefore, the request fees for the day are 2520 * 0.026 = 65.52 USD.
    • Excessive traffic fees:
      The number of requests generated on January 2 is 25.2 million; therefore, the free tier of traffic is 2520 * 0.25 = 630 GB. The actual traffic generated on the day is 692.52 GB, which exceeds the free tier by 692.52 - 630 = 62.52 GB; therefore, the excessive traffic fees for the day are 62.52 * 0.143 = 8.94 USD.
    • Total fees for the day
      The total fees for January 2 are 65.52 + 8.94 = 74.46 USD.

    Fees for January 3

    • Request fees:
      The number of requests generated on January 3 is 64 million as shown below, and the cumulative number of requests in January is 149 million. On the day, 15 million requests fall into the tier of 50 million–100 million, and 49 million requests fall into the tier of 100 million–500 million. Therefore, the request fees for the day are 1500 * 0.026 + 4900 * 0.024 = 156.60 USD.
    • Excessive traffic fees:
      The number of requests generated on January 3 is 64 million; therefore, the free tier of traffic is 6400 * 0.25 = 1600 GB. The actual traffic generated on the day is 1,731 GB, which exceeds the free tier by 1731 - 1600 = 131 GB; therefore, the excessive traffic fees for the day are 131 * 0.143 = 18.73 USD.
    • Total fees for the day
      The total fees for January 3 are 156.60 + 18.73 = 175.33 USD.
    Date January 1 January 2 January 3
    Total number of requests on the day 59.8 million 25.2 million 64 million
    Total traffic on the day 1,400.48 GB 692.52 GB 1,731 GB
    Total fees for the day 170.48 USD 74.46 USD 175.33 USD
